grants. one is in the same-sex marriage cases, the defense of marriage cases and the proposition 8 cases and the other is in the voting rights cases. both of these are likely to be taken on by the courts. we don't know how they will play out because they have not to grant uncertainty in these cases yet. i think they also share some interesting aspects, and those on the relationship between the state and a federal government. first, to turn to the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 cases -- i will talk about doma cases for it. first, for some history on doma, it was passed in 1996 and has two main sections from only one is really at issue in section 2 is about trying to protect states from being forced to recognized marriage in other states. the section that deals with the defense of marriage for federal purposes, federal law, federal taxes, a whole host of bedroll laws. it says, for the purpose of federal law, the word marriage means of a legal union between one man and one woman, husband and wife, and spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the

. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt ry re jt about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts once he gets into the oval do in virginia beach almos soons speech, president obama started his. he hadirginia smat tore jim webb introducinghi the former navy secretary. president obama pulling outhis big guns down there, and it's all about these military defense issues because, susan, that is a huge industry in this state. those jobs are very important, very critical in this state. it's not a surprise to see both campaigns going after those voters. >> we know they seer going after the veterans. is there any difference in strategy between these twho candidates when it comes to dealing with veterans? >> reporter: i don't think so. i think that both campai
, health care, prescription drugs and national defense all combined. now, i think those are the wrong priorities. now, under my proposal, for every dollar that i propose in spending for things like education and health care, i will put another dollar into middle class tax cuts. and for every dollar that i spend in those two categories, i'll put $2 toward paying down the national debt. i think it's very important to keep the debt going down and completely eliminate it. and i also think it's very important to go to the next stage of welfare reform. our country has cut the welfare rolls in half. i fought hard from my days in the senate and as vice president to cut the welfare rolls and we've moved millions of people in america into good jobs. but it's now time for the next stage of welfare reform, and include fathers and not only mothers. >> we're going to get a lot of those. >> let me just say that obviously tonight we're going to hear some phony numbers about what i think and what we ought to do. people need to know that over the next ten years it is going to be $25 trillion of revenue
way -- what i would suggest is don't go on defense. everybody in politics has these change positions. so you go after the president for some of those really dramatic flip-flops that he's had just like everybody else. >> rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, he's in denver helping the romney campaign get ready for a huge night, debate night in america. mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. take care. >> thank you. >>> and just ahead here in "the situation room," we're going to hear from the other side, stephanie cutter, the deputy cap pain manager for barack obama, she's going to join us live from denver as well. that's coming up later. our new poll shows voters have very definite ideas about who they expect will win tonight. gloria borger is standing by. she's got the numbers. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my wa
reduction plan. he wants to spend $2 trillion more in defense, $5 trillion more in a tax cut won't tell us how you pay for, before you even start talking about deficit reduction. it's a joke to think mitt romney will actually take action to redaus the deficit. >> taxes, this week he did come out with this proposal of eliminating $17,000 in deductions. >> right. >> your response to that? >> well, you know, he left out a number of different details of that proposal but i would also say that limiting deductions to $17,000 for middle-class families still results in a tax increase. even in just the health premium deduction, for families last year, were about $15,000. there you go. what happens to the mortgage deduction, charitable deduction, child deduction. he's raising taxes on middle class families. >> if this comes up and mitt romney starts to do that math that paul ryan wouldn't do, i'm sure this will be a topic of discussion. >> how worried are you about the jobs report on friday? >> we face this every month. you'll probably see steady progress. we've created 5.1 million private sector jo

a number of incidents between the two countries. last june, syrian antiaircraft defenses shot down a turkish military reconnaissance jet, killing two pilots, both sides disagree on where exactly that incident took place. but the turks did not really fire back. they didn't use force aside from condemning that attack. the syrians accused turkey of arming the rebels that are fighting against bashar al assad's regime. so this is a very tense relationship and there are voices here at turkey calling for more significant retaliation in response to the death of these five turkish citizens. >> how do the turks feel, ivan, when it comes to possible military intervention in syria? >> i think there are a lot of misgivings, brooke. there are a lot of voices here that are afraid that turkey could be dragged into a war with syria. opposition, political parties have spoken out against the government's policy of supporting the syrian opposition and supporting the syrian rebels. they actually accused the u.s. of trying to outsource turkey to try to bring down the assad regime. those are charges that
